Yes of course, there will be food trucks and a restaurant. However, we are a sustainable meat-free festival. You can buy your drinks at the various bars.


At the entrance of Paradise City, we will scan and link your ticket to your wristband. Once it is activated you can check in and check out at the festival during your stay by scanning your wristband with one of our Staff members. To charge your wristband with credit you can use one of our many cash desks, special unmanned Cashless Top-ups, or you can even charge your wristband with our Paradise City APP (which you’ll be able to download on the Apple Store and Play Store soon). When you want to have a cool drink, or buy some food at one of our delicious food trucks, you just have to scan your wristband at one of our bars/food trucks, it’s as simple as that! Note that we use reusable cups and that they have a recoverable deposit. You can also buy your credits when purchasing your ticket at the ticket shop, with a discount (you can already buy them on the website).

This year we have 3 magnificent charging options for you:

1. Thanks to Payconiq by Banctontact you can charge your wristband by just scanning the QR code on your chip with your smartphone. You will be then redirected to the Payconiq app where you’ll be able to charge your wristband without having to stay in line!
2. You can go to one of our top up desks, which are spread across the festival ground. Here you can pay only with  card, no cash will be allowed at the festival this year.
3. Use one of our unmanned cashless top-up machines (card only) where you can charge your wristband very quickly.

After every order you place at a bar, your left over credits will be shown on the device. If for some reason you forget how many credits you have left, just go to a bar or cash desk and ask one of our crew members.

If you still have some money left on your wristband after the festival, you can simply ask for a refund on our website after the festival. More information on how and where to get your refund will be given after the festival.
New this year is that you will also be able to donate your credits that are left on your wristband to a good cause.

And no worries, there is no GPS tracking device placed in your wristband, so the Paradise City Big Brother crew won’t be able to track you down. But… this is on our to-do-list for our edition in 2084 😉

Note: If you would like to get a refund, please be aware that there will be a small service fee charged. (Amount not yet known: Playpass will set it for us, but it will be around 0.50euro)

No limit. Sky is the limit.
For your own safety the maximum amount you can recharge at once is 450 euros.

No, this year we do not accept any cash.

Yes you can! There will be a Paradise City ATM located at the camping, so you are able to charge your wristband all day and all night during your stay.

Every time you leave the festival site and you want to come back the same day, you’ll have to check yourself out at the exit. This can be done easily: scan your wristband on the black boxes found at the exit, and the trick is done.

It is your responsibility to check yourself out! Failing to do so may give you problems when checking back in the same day.
Once you are ready to go to sleep, at the end of a beautiful day full of partying, you can exit the festival without checking yourself – we will reset all access control and you can scan your wristband the next day, if you bought a ticket of course… 😉


There is a first aid station permanently present on site, clearly marked on the festival terrain and map. Please be aware that these people stand in for your safety and the safety of your loved ones, so it’s highly recommended to follow their instructions carefully.
The Security team is also available on and around the festival.

Even if we limit the decibels, think about your ears. Earplugs are available for free at the information booth. We count on you to throw them in the bin and not on the floor as they take forever to degrade. If you are looking for reusable earplugs specially designed for listening to live music, then BLOX has what you are looking for. You can find earplugs with acoustic filters via their mobile team walking around the scenes. Enjoy a crystal-clear sound while protecting your ears. More info on

Of course, if it’s legal medication.
